Re: Clarification on M mount threads - Zenit

Are you confusing the focal length with the mount size ?

You most likely are . You can for example have a 50mm lens for a m42 mount

Or a 50mm lens for a 39mm mount .

There’s adapters for lenses as well .

There’s thousands of different m42 lenses in pretty much any focal lengths you can imagine .

Hunting for them is a lot of fun . I’m surprised that you didn’t get any lenses with these cameras .

Shooting film through them is quite a different experience .

Shooting with a mirrorless camera and old lenses is fun as well,
